[GA206] Gamma-ray Astronomy with DAMPE
Based on 18 months of data from the DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE), we are able to produce a GeV gamma-ray sky map showcasing the powerful e/p (e/gamma) discrimination and high space resolution of DAMPE. Bright gamma-ray point sources of various kinds are identified in the map. We discuss the potential usage of DAMPE’s photon observation in both calibration and science, including boresight alignment, transient sources monitoring, and study of variable sources.
